The remains of about 100 soldiers from Croatia's Second World War fascist army were reburied in a low-key ceremony alongside anti-Nazi partisan fighters, despite Jewish outrage.

Some 6,000 people followed the coffins, wrapped in the Croatian national flag, to a cemetery outside the Adriatic seaside town of Omis.

A memorial ceremony there was attended by state officials, Roman Catholic priests and members of Croatia's contemporary armed forces. Omis - Reuter
